What is a combi boiler? 

A combi boiler (short for combination boiler) is a combination (the clue is in the name!) of a water heater and central heating boiler together in one compact unit.

They are now the most popular type of boiler fitted in homes across the UK. This is not only because of their compact design, but for being a lot more energy-efficient, eco-friendly and can keep your house warmer for longer!

Advantages of a new combi boiler

There are many reasons why combi boilers are the most popular choice nowadays.

The benefits of opting for a combi include:

  • They heat water instantly, which reduces water wastage making them more cost-effective.
  • They are faster: Combi’s heat water directly from the mains on demand.
  • Powering your shower with a combi boiler means you no longer require a separate shower pump. This saves a lot of money and is also more reliable than a general shower pump.
  • There are lots of size options for a combi; meaning smaller homes can choose a more compact design,
  • There is less pipework which makes installation costs less expensive.
  • Cold water from combi boilers (your cold tap water) is guaranteed safe to drink.
  • As water comes straight from the mains, they are less likely to develop pressure problems. Sludge is also not as much of a concern for this reason.
